There it was, he finally said it.
After so long, he atlas gained the actual courage to say what's been on his mind to the woman he wanted most.
When he first saw her, it was love at first sight. Cliche, right? Sure it was, but it's all but a lie.
She was different being compared to every other woman. She was the woman of her gender. She dominated it. Just by the mention of her name, sent him off the edge. When he was with her, it was like all of his problems didn't exist. It was like he didn't even know the meaning of sadness.
All he wanted was her.
All he ever needed was her.
He truly did love her.
Yet, from the look on her face, she was not at all impressed.
"Do we really have to do this now, Akaashi?" She asked, crossing her arms.
"Look, just don't embarrass me, okay?" And with that, she turned around and went ahead, towards the other direction. The sound of her heels clattering against the marble floor.
He remained still.
He could hear his beating heart pounding in his ears. He watched her leave off into the distance, to their destination. He couldn't process what had just happened.
He didn't understand.
Was that a rejection?
Or was she going to continue the conversation after the planned event?
Whichever it was, he still felt his world crash down.
"Listen here, you shitty piece of shit! You are ugly, you are dumb, and you are unworthy! But you will prove to them that you are talented! You will prove that you can be more than what meets the eye! You will-"
"Y/N, QUIT ROASTING YOURSELF IN FRONT OF THE BATHROOM MIRROR AND HURRY YOUR ASS UP BEFORE YOU MISS THE TRAIN!!!"
"FOR THE LAST TIME, GRANDMA, ROASTING MYSELF GIVES ME CONFIDENCE!"
"YEAH, BECAUSE THAT MAKES SENSE!"
"WHATEVER! NOW MOVE YOUR FLATASS!"
"WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME?!"
"I CALLED YOU A 'FLATASS', CAN YOU NOT HEAR?!"
"FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GRANDMA!"
